Background and Objectives

On May 25, 1999, the association "Management Forum for Innovative Public Service" (Führungsforum Innovative Verwaltung, FIV) was set up on the premises of the Austrian Centre for Productivity and Economic Efficiency (Österreichisches Produktivitäts- und Wirtschaftlichkeitsforum, ÖPWZ) upon the initiative of Director-General Emmerich Bachmayer of the Federal Ministry of Public Service and Sports.

The association seeks to achieve its objectives primarily through constant contacts with politicians responsible for administrative development as well as managers and executives of the Austrian business community. In line with the best-practices concept, the senior public servants who are members of the association will heighten their awareness of the need for and feasibility of innovations in public administration by studying innovative public service institutions at home and abroad and by analysing successful private-sector enterprises.
